This may appear to be bandwidth, "blame the customers internet connection", but I can assure this is definitely NOT the case. At certain times, when viewing iTunes Movie rentals on Apple TV, connected via Ethernet to router, i get constant freezing during HD rental movie. This does not happen randomly, as i've rented tons on movies from itunes and all have been a.o.k my connection is 8/1Mpbs upstream, and i've noticed a conisitant pattern over time. it seems to happen with latest 2012 movies...... As to why its only them ? I have no idea, I agree, it's due to time of day i rent these, mostly in the evening, (same issues as Netflix, everyone gets on after work.. etc....) but surly then it would be any movie, not just latest ones. This would be the same if it was my internet connection... but its not.. Is it just Apples server and for some reason where these latest rentals ? (eg Skyfall).
